Even though my Dad wanted me to be a lawyer, I found my calling in the field of Communication and I love it. I have a Bachelor’s in History and English, with a Post- Graduate Diploma in Mass Communication. Having worked in Advertising and Public Relations for a while, I moved to Ohio University to pursue a Masters in Communication and Development Studies as well as a PhD in Organizational and Health Communication.

Prior to teaching at Westfield, I taught communication courses at Ohio University, where I also worked as a Residential Coordinator. I love working with students and supporting their college experience.

Currently, I teach courses in the area of Public and Corporate Communication. My research interests include organizing for social change, ethnic and gender studies, corporate, intercultural, and health communication.

In my free time, I like to travel and learn about different cultures.
